NOTICE TO ENGINEERS (posted 8/3/17)

Joint District No. 28J of the Counties of Adams and Arapahoe (Aurora Public Schools) is accepting proposals for qualified applicants to provide engineering services for the following projects:

  • Districtwide Fire Alarm Wiring Upgrades
  • Districtwide PA System Upgrades
  • Districtwide Security Camera Upgrades

Project Description:  

Original fire alarm wiring and hardware is past its useful life.  Many of the District's current configurations are analog systems and not compatible with current addressable topologies.  The project will provide for newer and safer addressable fire alarm systems.  Similarly, several of the District's PA systems are obsolete due to age (20 years or older) and/or no longer manufactured. Existing PA systems are not designed for use in emergency, security, and mass notification environments.  These older systems cannot be integrated into present communications systems; and wiring and devices at sites have reached or exceeded their useful life.  The project will include new hardware and wiring.  Lastly, the current security camera systems have inadequate storage, require constant maintenance, and provide poor image quality.  Original DVR systems are obsolete and are no longer supported by the manufacturer.  The project includes replacement of analog cameras with newer IP cameras.

Engineering firms interested in being considered for work with the District are requested to submit one hard copy of a letter of interest and qualification information to:

Aurora Public Schools
